Currently the flu epidemic has spread across our nation, causing many to run to their nearest CVS or RiteAid to receive a flu vaccination shot. Because they may have newborn children in the home, elderly parents residing with them, or work at a small company that sends anyone with symptoms home, this could cause someone to become fearful and do whatever they must to not become sick. However, did you know that you have something way more powerful at your disposal than a vaccination shot? If you have received Jesus in your heart, you have access to divine protection from all manner of sickness and disease. Any plague that is spreading rapidly throughout the world can’t attack you when you have the power of the blood of Jesus covering you and those in your home. In the day when the Israelites were preparing to make an exodus out of Egypt, God gave Moses specific instructions to prepare a lamb, sacrifice it, and smear the blood of the lamb on every door post. The death angel was coming to Egypt and God was protecting His people from the harm that would ensue. (see Exodus 12:21-30) Well aren’t you glad we don’t have to kill an animal and wipe its blood on the top of our front door? No, we have something far better. Because of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, we have the right to plead the blood of Jesus, the wonderful Lamb of God, over our home. We have power through Jesus to walk in divine protection from any sickness or epidemic. You walking in the power of protection is not dependent upon how good you are nor is it performance-based. If you have Jesus living within, by the grace and goodness of God, you have a right to walk in divine health and protection. Use your authority and protect the ones you love with the power that is in the blood of the risen Lord.
“If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.” Psalms 91:9-10
Father God, I receive the protection that You have provided for me. Thank you for the blood of Jesus that not only washes away my sin but provides awesome protection for me. I use my authority right now and declare that no plague will come near my home or my loved ones. No flu symptoms will attack me or my family because of the protective blood of Jesus. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
